Salone del Mobile, Brilliant Women Working Behind the Scenes: Cristina Celestino

Pretty Posts |

At last year’s Salone you may have heard about an old tram carriage that underwent a very Milanese makeover: Cristina Celestino was the designer behind that vision. This year she’s got another surprise up her sleeve: she’s turned her attention to a landmark pasticceria. This design week the famous Cafe Cucchi on the corner of Corso Genova has had a lavish makeover, with plush red velvet seats and embroidered wall paintings, thanks to Celestino’s innovative imaginings. Interiors come naturally to this designer; she first trained as an architect in Venice before moving to Milan in 2009 to found her own design brand ‘Attico Design’. The spirited shapes of Attico’s unique furniture and lamps feel indebted to Celestino’s architectural training, a training that saw her win the special jury prize at Salone del Mobile back in 2016. This year she’s got a lot on her plate. We managed to steal a moment of her time to find out which designers inspire her and where she likes to go to escape the noise of the city. If you’re in Milan why not read this while sipping a macchiato at the revamped cafe?

Activated Charcoal Beauty Products For Your Skin Detox Needs

Pretty Posts |

With all the die hard wellness enthusiasts I come to contact with on a daily basis here in Los Angeles, let’s just say little shocks me in terms of the latest health trends. Activated charcoal may not be new to the scene, but when you start going to restaurants and charcoal water is on the menu, or that the incredulous wall of beverages at Erewhon has a whole section dedicated to this supplement, you know we have an obsession on our hands. Still hesitant to actually taste it, I have used it in my beauty regime.
